Shipping Solicitors

We are shipping solicitors in the UK that offer pragmatic and cost-effective solutions to the commercial shipping, transport and marine leisure industries. We specialise in contentious and non-contentious shipping work, including sale and purchase, collissions, salvage, charterparty and bills of lading disputes.

 

We also offer leisure marine services for boat owners and insurer in most aspects of boat ownership and operation. We protect you, your boat and your business, helping to minimise the risks associated with boat ownership, which saves you time and money in the long run.

 

When buying a boat you must check that the seller owns the boat and therefore has the right to sell it. Also make sure the boat is not encumbered with a marine mortgage or outstanding marina fees for example. When investigating title, the UK Ship Register is a good starting point, but what if vessel is not registered? How do you investigate title and obtain satisfactory proof of ownership? We can help.

 

We advise the fishing industry, shipping companies, cargo owners, boat owners, marine insurers, marina operators, and individuals with superyachts.
